The answer is of course: yes. It is absolutely understandable that inventors need good quality patent work. What does quality mean in case of patents? It covers a wide range of factors, including how straightforward the patenting process is and your satisfaction during patenting your invention. Those, who help you should be well trained and informed with the most up-to-date technological and legal changes to ensure correct invention description, protect inventors’ rights and, of course, the effectiveness of the patent processes should be measurable. This is what the USPTO calls Enhanced Patent Initiative. To achieve all these aims, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has initiated a summit. It will first take place on 25-26 March, at the centre of USPTO in Alexandria, Virginia. The meeting is open to the public: the leaders of the organization are inviting patent prosecutors, litigators, applicants, licensees and all those who are interested in the USPTO’s patent quality improvement work. The website of the Federal Register provides you more details about the event and contact information, should you decide to participate in the meeting. [...]
Have you come up with the next big invention? If you plan on protecting it don't wait or you could end up like Elisha Gray! On February 14, 1876, Alexander Graham Bell applied for a patent on an apparatus that could transmit speech electrically, beating out his rival, Elisha Gray, by just two hours. Never mind that Gray's design worked better. Timing was all that mattered. When Gray later filed a lawsuit, the courts awarded the patent to Bell, who went down in history as the official inventor of the telephone! If you have the next big idea don't wait for someone else to figure it out and cash in first. The United States Patent ad Trademark Office offers a low-cost solution for inventors called a Provisional Patent Application, or PPA. A Provisional Patent Application secures an immediate priority filing date for your invention. In other words, it allows you to go on record as the first person to officially lay claim to your invention. Securing a priority filing date is critical because as far as the government is concerned, it's not who came up with the [...]
We often get people contacting us with this question. Interesting that the answer came out in an edition of the Inventor's eye back in 2013. Here is what the patent office had to say: From Inventor's Eye - "You’ve heard it before: “We make the best!” Be it barbecue sauce or brownies, it seems like everyone claims to have a unique and special food recipe. But can the culinary geniuses who came up with those recipes obtain a patent and exclude others from making, using, or selling their delectable creations? First, remember that patents may be granted for any “new and useful process, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, or any new and useful improvement thereof” according to Title 35 of the United States Code, Section 101 (35 U.S.C. 101). A food product or recipe typically has three components: a list of ingredients, instructions on how to combine and cook them, and the final product resulting from the first two components. In terms of patentable subject matter, a list of ingredients can fall under the headings of a composition of matter and/or manufacture, and the [...]
